Whether it's changing oil and inspecting brakes or concealing a minor bumper scratch and eradicating rust or dents, The Paint Shop's facility in Rochester offers both repairs and cosmetic services for autos. On the repair side, mechanics and collision experts offer a range of services to make your car run better and last longer. For those looking to soup up their car's exterior, they can get cars washed and detailed, or pass through the Nova-Ventra paint booth, where certified technicians help customers match paint colors during free estimates. Then, the authorized PPG paint center uses environmentally-friendly water-based paints to complete a wide array of projects.
Bob Johnson Chevrolet's knowledgeable service team and GM-trained mechanics prep for winter with oil changes, tire rotations, inspections, and new sets of tires. The certified service technicians execute the winterization package by appeasing engines' appetites with up to 6 quarts of standard motor oil, installing a new ACDelco oil filter, and lubricating hinges, suspensions, and drivelines. A tire rotation helps prolong rubbery soles' lifespans by balancing the wear and tear treads experience as cars drive on roads or the sides of pyramids. Techs also fill tires with nitrogen—as opposed to standard compressed air—to help to improve fuel efficiency and maintain constant tire pressure. Along with running through a General Motors–certified service checklist, mechanics administer a thorough inspection of fluids, wiper blades, batteries, brake systems, and flux capacitors.

A nearly 65-year-old institution passed from father to son, Pierce Automotive gives domestic and import vehicles life-extending tune-ups and quick repairs. Proprietor Brian Pierce has worked the floors of Pierce Automotive since boyhood, developing car-repairing expertise and the ability to understand the clicking, wheezing language of carburetors. During oil changes, skilled technicians replace the vehicle’s vital lubricant, extending engine life by reducing wear and friction and boosting mileage. A tire service with rotation, balance, and mount ensures even distribution of weight across wheels, improving driving comfort, steering, and safety. A battery recharge, which includes a tune-up, change, terminal cleaning, and insulator installation, jolts somnambulant cars awake faster than a liter of mocha latte poured straight into the gas tank.
The Tint Shop outfits vehicles and businesses with all their tinting needs using 3M products, a trade that's earned the business accolades on the Democrat and Chronicle's Rochester’s Choice list for nine years in a row. The shop’s film-application specialists cloak windshields in six different types of film, from high-performance charcoal sheaths to fun tints in a rainbow of colors. Solar-control films block up to 99% of the sun's rays—keeping upholstery from fading and bread from toasting—while specially designed safety and security films reinforce glass to protect it during harsh weather or burglaries. Aside from treating windows, The Tint Shop's crew also masks headlights and taillights in 3M film, and soups up rides with vinyl graphics, audio and video systems, car alarms, and remote starters.
